The original recipe called for a teaspoon of soy sauce. I haven't seen this ingredient listed in recent years but I still use it. I think it adds flavor.

>>work with the green bean casserole

absolutely. shallots, leeks, scallions, salt pork - many things can dress it up.

the Campbell recipe calls for the fried onion rings on top - but that's not a must either - I've used cracker crumbs, grated cheese . . .

We always use cream of asparagus, much more flavor, everyone in my family likes it better

I made this ahead of time so I can take it to my mother's house. We will be on the road for a few hours. Should I refrigerate then bake when we get there or freeze it now? I'm worried about the texture if it sits in the fridge for 2 days before baking. If I do freeze it how do I prepare when ready? Thanks for your help and suggestions!

at this point in time, T-Day minus xx hrs,,,, I'd keep it covered & chilled. it'll be okay for a couple hours in the car.

don't add the "toppings" of a crispy nature - take those along "dry" and add at going into the oven. . .

Hi all - I'm living in the UK and would like to make a green bean caserole for friends I'm having over tomorrow (even a couple of other Americans!) however I have never seen French Fried Onions here and due to time constraints can't really go searching high and low for them.

Does anyone have any suggestions on alternative topings or a variation of the recipe that doesn't need the FFO?

Thanks for any advice you can give!

One 10 ounce can. Not 10 cans (unless you're feeding a whole lot of people!)

I really like french fried onions, and I still think they make the best topping for this. However, I agree with some of the above posts that there are other options that make for tasty variation.

Today I went to a Thanksgiving dinner for a local teachers group. For ease of transport, I just took all the ingredients in their cans, but I think it would be fine, or even blend the flavors better if you mixed all but the topping and chilled it and kept it cool during transportation. I arrived at the community center to find that I had everything but the french fried onion! Fortunately, there were some potato chips someone had opened during prep time, so I helped myself to the last quarter bag. I crunched the chips up and when the casserole was ready for them, spread them on top. It turned out really well!

Next time I think I may try some chip-style onion ring snacks. Break those up and sprinkle them on top. I think that might even be better than the french fried onions.

ok this is the best: mix 1 can green beans, 1 can mushroom soup(used other cream soup flavours and was ok i.e.cream chicken), 1/2 c. shredded cheese,1/4 c. slivered almonds, 1/2 can french onions or I also ues the bagged salad toppers in a wide variety of flavours. mix together bake at 350 for 30 mins. put the rest of the onions on top and bake for ten more. yum yum

My family makes this casserole on camping trips (well, car camping anyway...it's kind of bulky for backpacking). It's not only great tasting, but you can adapt the recipe to make it from non-perishables so you can have it even when you're several days out from refrigeration. We've successfully made it over a camp stove, charcoal grill and open campfire, depending on circumstances. ( BTW, I suspect there would be no problem with a crock pot, in response to an earlier post.) Biggest thing to watch out for: the French's Fried Onions tend to evaporate while you are preparing the meal, so make sure you have plenty on hand.

I've found the beans don't continue cooking very much after you put them in the casserole. I guess I should add, never baked it for hours and hours either....

you can use canned - heat through and put in casserole.

Canned beans will almost guarantee mushy. I use canned since mushy is the texture that (I think) green bean casserole should be. It's pretty much the only time I like mushy green beans. I once had a green bean casserole where the green beans were lightly cooked (what I would normally consider just right) and disliked it. The crunch in this dish should come from the french fried onion topping and the beans should be cooked until soft (so the texture is smooth and almost creamy).
